Stolen Space Gallery Presents: D*Face “New World Disorder” (London, UK)


D*Face, a.k.a the world-renowned urban artist Dean Stockton, presents New World Disorder. This exhibition, showing work from the last seven years, marks the end of an era at StolenSpace before we relocate to a new location.
The exhibition also includes a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the unique nerve centre of D*Face’s working environment by visiting his studio space, situated above the StolenSpace Gallery, within the maze of The Old Truman Brewery.
Stockton has been at the forefront of popular culture not only as an acclaimed wall painter and artist, but also as a respected, internationally-recognised gallerist at StolenSpace. Since its humble beginnings in 2007, he has transformed the local area of Brick Lane in to a thriving hub for street art.
With galleries representing his work in London, New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Melbourne, D*Face re-works popular imagery from advertising and comic books, commenting on the corruptive nature of fame, celebrity and our consumerist society.
The exhibition includes his latest body of work, which reflects upon times of chaos, disorder and loss, as informed by shifting circumstances in the social climate. Exploring topical and longstanding dystopian sentiments, New World Disorder confronts the effects of love and loss from a physical, mental and cultural standpoint, drawing upon the artist’s direct experiences.
Elements of the show are inspired by The Tillman Story, the 2010 documentary film about the 2004 death of U.S. Army Ranger Pat Tillman in the war in Afghanistan, the cover-up of the true circumstances of his death, and his family’s struggle to unearth the truth.
